GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers veteran wide receiver Donald Driver has a broken thumb, which explains why the franchise's all-time leading receiver was inactive Sunday for the first time since a quadriceps injury kept him out of a game Nov. 7, 2010. It was only the fourth game Driver has missed over the past decade. "The thumb is OK, (but) it's broken," Driver said Wednesday in the locker room after having limited participation in practice. "I can't do anything about it. One thing about it is it's not the worst that I've had. I can fight through anything, and I'll continue to fight through this one." Driver's injury adds to what has become a seemingly insurmountable number of injuries for Green Bay. Outside linebacker Clay Matthews, wide receiver Jordy Nelson, defensive back Charles Woodson, cornerback Sam Shields, offensive lineman T.J. Lang, defensive linemen Mike Neal and C.J.

Production a key for Packers running game

With the reigning NFL MVP at quarterback, the Green Bay Packers are never going to be a pound-it-out, run-first operation. Opposing defenses insist on playing their safeties deep in cover-2 schemes, a tactic meant to take away the Packers' downfield passing game while daring them to run. So the party line that the success of the Green Bay running game is measured more on the...

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers: Week 14 NFL Pick

Detroit Lions (4-8) at Green Bay Packers (8-4) This is a really interesting game. Earlier this week, I wrote about some of the parity related things that happen every single year and how those could be used to help predict games the rest of the way. The Lions are by far the likeliest candidate to be this year’s team that goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Only the Saints...
